Mobile Legends Johnson Lane

Johnson is played in the Middle Lane to help the Mage/Support in clearing the lanes.

After unlocking Ultimate, Johnson with Mage/Support should around the map inside their side and wait for enemy to show up for a surprise gank in any one of the lanes.

Roaming on your side of the map in the Car Form will prevent you from revealing yourself to the enemies and it also adds the element of surprise to your Ganks which makes your enemy fear from you. Hence, they cannot play outside of their turret and will have a continuous fear of getting ganked.

Mobile Legends Johnson

Ultimate Skill Rapid Touchdown

Every time you level up this Skill, Johnson permanently increases his Physical Defence by 10 %/ 20 %/ 30 %. Johnson can use this Skill to transform into his Car Form. Johnson can also allow one of his allies to ride with him.

After a 2 second delay, Johnson will start riding. During this time, Johnson has 2 Skill Button available at the place of Skill 2 and Ultimate.

Pressing New Skill 2 Button will activate Throttle. Using Throttle will increase the speed of Johnson. Amount of Throttle is Limited, and it can be seen under HP Bar as Thick Light Blue Colour Bar.

Pressing New Ultimate Button will transform Johnson back to his Human Form. Johnson will transform back to his Human Form on hitting any Enemy Hero, Turret or Wall.

Johnson will ignore any Minion, Creep, and Turtle and Lord and will not end his Car Form. Johnson can stay permanently in his Car Form until he crashes into any of the above-mentioned things.

Mobile Legends Johnson Skill Combo

Johnson Main Combo

Check you HP. If you feel it is low recall back to base, then Heal yourself. While recalling, use Signal to ask an Ally to also recall. This way you can gank efficiently with an Ally’s Support.

Use Ultimate and check Minimap. On Minimap, check where your Hyper Carry is. Always try to gank in the Lane where your Hyper Carry can easily gank.

This gives more opportunities to your Hyper Carry for Farming safely and spam the Gold Bonus from using Jungle Item. Ultimately helping your Hyper Carry having an efficient Farm throughout the game.

Hit Enemy because hitting will stun them which is important for ganking. Use Skill 2 immediately. When the enemy recovers from Stun due to Ultimate, use Skill 1 to again Stun the Enemy. This makes sure that your allies can easily get One Kill in the fight.

Mobile Legends Johnson Skill Combo

Invisible Car Ninjutsu

You need to build Shadow Mask from Roaming Item. Use Shadow Mask and then use Ultimate. This makes your car invisible, thus adding an element of surprise.

This combo was not popular in the High Ranks because before revamp, you never had Throttle Button which always led to failure of the combo. But now due to his Revamp, Throttle helps in ganking in Invisible Mode even from riding from a bit farther distance.

Skill 2 2 6 10 13 14 15
Ultimate 4 8 12

Mobile Legends Johnson Guide 2021

In Custom Mode, Practice riding Johnson. Johnson is picked mainly because of his Car Form. If you as player are not good with driving, then you cannot gank efficiently.

Always focus on building Physical Defence Item to gain the Maximum out of his Passive. Use Emblem and One Magic Defence Item to sustain Magic Damage.

Roaming on your side of the map in the Car Form will prevent you from revealing yourself to the enemies and it also adds the element of surprise to your Ganks which makes your enemy fear from you. Hence, they cannot play outside of their turret and will have a continuous fear of getting ganked.

On Minimap, check where your main Hyper Carry is. Always try to gank in the Lane where your Hyper Carry can easily gank.
